the holidays in hawaii, his home state. do we know what, if anything, they are doing about that trip? >> reporter: that's not been announced yet, but since the congress is leaving, it would seem -- since the house of representatives, it would follow the president would go to hawaii for a period of time, would be my expectation. he could go sometime in the next few days, and then have christmas with his family, open the gifts in hawaii, and then come back shortly after christmas to try to cobble together a deal quickly before the new year, if that can be done. >> they've got until january 1st to do it. he was in the roosevelt room earlier in the day making a major announcement as well. tell our viewers about that. >> reporter: that's right. he used this opportunity to get one cabinet announcement under his belt. but he waited long enough to let -- it took long enough that susan rice first dropped out under pressure. that left john kerry as the last one standing and it's clear here at the white house the president and his aides expect kerry's confirmation to go very smoothly. you can e

, ms. hanabusa of hawaii, would like to take in memory of the extraordinary senator. i had the pleasure of working with him in the mid 1990's when i was the deputy secretary of the department of interior, we were working on the native hawaiian lands issues. he was a remarkable individual, one that not only understood the intricacies of that very complex situation, but also had enormous passion for the native hawaiians. and so tonight i yield whatever time she might want to take to our colleague from the great state of washington -- hawaii. ms. hanabusa: thank you very much to the gentleman from california. i'm here to honor a state which is unique and as special as the person i honor. the person i rise to honor is daniel k. inouye. a person who cannot be described by a single adjective. a person whose accomplishments would cause you to pause and say, is this one person? is this one man? a person was awarded the greatest honor anyone who serves in the military can achieve, the congressional medal of honor. but it was an honor about 55 years late. from a country that questioned his loyalt
